Default Bluetooth headset+gear as mp3 player

My question is simple, but I didn't find the answer on the web.
Let say I do like running. So is it possible to connect directly bluetooth headphones to the gear to play music while I am running and not to carry GN3 with me?

Do you not need to have the gn3 with or close to you to be able to use the gear since the gear is connected to the Phone through bluetooth?

Unless you have music stored on the watch but I'm not sure that's possible since you can only control music on your phone from the watch

No, I have Null Rom on my gear. I would like to put some music to the gear and go running with it. I dont need Note 3 with me.
That is why I ask is it possible

i own a bluetooth headset, gear discovers it but it's unable to connect.
now this might due to some missing stuff of android. i'm still on old null 11 that works well for me so i see no reason to upgrading now, but perhaps it's possible with newer version?

i would like to be able to stream music from it as well.. running with note 3 in your pocket is not really confident. :P

This would be nice but we seem to be limited on Bluetooth connectivity in the USA. I know that you can put music files and play them through the Gear's speaker, by sideloading programs like Apollo, it works really well.

I would like to be able to do this also. On Null rom 15 currently, have sidloaded many apps, one of which is poweramp. I can also sideload MP3's, but if I can't pair my BT headphones it doesn't do much good. Hoping someone can find a way of using BT headphones with the Gear as a stand alone.

F0mey hasn't been able to get a Bluetooth profile that works for this
You can ofcourse put music on (only 4gb storage though!) and sideload a music app
